I was diagnosed with PCOS about ten years ago. I haven't seen a doctor in years for different reasons. Anyway, I moved to NC and it has been hard to find a doctor for pcos in my area.
Someone finally recommended me an endo and it was a total waste of money and time. She charged me $260 to tell me she didn't know if she could help me, or if I even had PCOS for that matter. She said that since I've had a regular cycle for about 3 years now (not completely regular, but one every 40 days), she doubts I have PCOS.
I lost all the records my doctor gave me when he diagnosed me so I couldn't show that to her. So just because I don't really have problems with my period, does that mean I don't have PCOS anymore? I was so irritated!!!!
I have all the other symptons.... excess body hair, overweight (specially when eating high carbs and sugars) sugar cravings, lack of energy, depression...
I just called the doctor that first diagnosed me in FL and he charges $500 just for the consult, plus lab fees. Isn't that great???
I don't have insurance.... so I'm pretty much screwed. It's just PCOS and me now.
I was hoping to be put on Met so it could help me lose weight. Right now I work out, watch what I eat... avoid sugars and carbs.... and nothing.
